A cat answers a young child's questions about such things as how much and where it sleeps, and whether or not it likes living with people.
Cats have permitted Karla Kuskin
to observe their antics for a very long time. She's found that they especially like to nap on her papers when she is trying to write about them! She has written dozens of poetry collections and picture books, including Roar and More; The Philharmonic Gets Dressed; The Animals and the Ark;
and Moon, Have You Met My Mother?
She has won numerous awards for her witty way with words, including the prestigious NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children and the Children's Book Council's Lifetime Achievement Award. She lives with her husband and Velma the cat on Bainbridge Island, Washington.
